Mickelson closes out Pebble Beach Pro-Am victory

Phil Mickelson plays a shot from the seventh tee during the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at Pebble Beach Golf Links on February 10, 2019.

CBS will provide live coverage of the event via its website, with coverage starting at 11 a.m. ET and continuing until play is finished.

Paul Casey made a final-hole birdie to post a final-round 71 and finish runner-up, with Scott Stallings - who began the day as clubhouse leader - a further stroke back in third.

Mickelson closed out the victory in style, with a birdie on the iconic par-5 18th hole, closing out a 7-under 65 to finish at 19 under for the tournament.

But Casey opted to mark his ball on the 16th green, knowing his 3-foot par putt would be on fresh greens Monday - and still give him the slimmest of hopes against Mickelson.

"This really is a special place for me, going back to 1919 when my grandfather was one of the initial caddies here", the 48-year-old said after becoming the oldest victor of the event.

"We've got two tough holes left and I don't want to jump the gun and get past that", Mickelson said. He also won the pro-am with Don Colleran, the chief sales officer for FedEx. "Let's play 17 and see how it goes".

Overnight leader Casey had a three-shot advantage over Mickelson at the start of the day, but the five-time major victor made up the deficit with three birdies in the front nine and three more after the turn. He won that summer's British Open at Muirfield and last year's Mexico Championship.

Mickelson and Casey were waiting to tee off when clouds moved in quickly moved in, and rain turned into hail that pounded umbrellas, many of them held sideways to account for the wind.

After a rain-delayed start, Mickelson had produced a blemish-free round and holed six birdies to move to 18 under before play was called off. "But I totally get where he's coming from". "I have pretty good vision, I'm playing well and I wanted to continue". Scott Piercy had a 15-foot putt that was slightly uphill, and he still ran it 7 feet by the hole and three-putted for bogey.

Jason Day and Kim Si-woo are tied for fourth place at 13 under.
